Girly Bits Cosmetics August CoTM duo!

(Press samples ahead!)

Hello!

Girly Bits Cosmetic's August CoTM duo is out, and it's a beauty! I literally gasped when I unwrapped each of these polishes.

The first polish is Girly Bits Cosmetics Depêche à la Mode, a blush crelly that flirts with the edge of peach, with gold shimmer and grey & orange-red flecks, along with a gentle spray of holo to give it a touch of magic:

Application and formula: Very good. I had a little patching on the first coat, but it evened out beautifully on the second.
Coverage: Two coats.

I love the blush trend this year--it's such a pretty alternative to beige when you're looking for a neutral, and this polish is how I love my neutrals--with a dash of something that makes them special and flirty while still keeping them understated and suitable for work. Grab a back-up bottle, 'cause you're gonna get a lot of use out of this.


The second member of the duo is Girly Bits Cosmetics Let Me Azure You, a navy-denim linear holo:

Application and formula: Excellent, no issues. Pam advises that the holo shows best when the polish is fully dry, and the same goes with topcoat--it may dull the holo a bit when wet, but this will go away once the topcoat is dry.
Coverage: Two coats.

This polish borders on navy, but reminds me more of a dark-wash denim. It's like a clear summer night's sky, right before it gets completely dark. If you wear jeans as much as I do, this is a versatile polish you'll get a lot of use from, and even if you don't, it's just plain gorgeous.


Both polishes will be available in the Girly Bits store through the end of August; they sell for $16.50 CAD each, and now through August 10th you get $2 off when you buy both polishes.


And, here's where you can stalk Girly Bits around the interwebs:




Happy polishing!
